I finally made it back on line. Good to be back with my internet family. I am living in the corner

of my daughter's living room until we can find a permanent answer to my homelessness. Not a bad place except we have 4 generations in the house. I have little private time to myself. I thank all of you for your offers of help and good wishes. DU is the best.

4. my household is full of several generations of folks, too. It's hard

but it's full of opportunities to love and help. Congratulations. Bring back the large extended family household! It's an inflation beater!

8. We've been a 3-generation family

for the past 15 years. The key is that the house, as small as it is, has niches where each person has private space. There are necessarily compromises and as the oldest generation here, I have to work hard at minding my own business which means that it can get pretty lonely.

Glad to hear you have a safe place to stay, out of the elements.

9. You are so right about it being hard to ignore some of the things that are going on around you.
